At the time, Apple News+ was only available in the United States and Canada, but Apple always had plans to expand the subscription service’s availability. Now, months later, that has finally happened. Apple announced in Australia (and in the United Kingdom) on Monday that the news service, which includes a large selection of popular magazines and trades, is now available in the United Kingdom and Australia.
In the United Kingdom, the price is set at £9.99 per month, while in Australia it costs $14.99 (AUS) per month. If you are in either region and you’re interested in checking out Apple News+, the company is offering a one month free trial to give it a shot.
For Australian readers, the selection includes The Australian, The Daily Telgraph, The Advertiser, Elle, Australian Women’s Health, Harper’s Bazaar Australia, GQ, and many others. Meanwhile, in the UK, options include The Times, Elle UK, Cosmopolitan UK, Esquire UK, FourFourTwo, and many others.
Newspapers and news outlets based out of the United States, including The Wall Street Journal, National Geographic, and Vox, are also included.
Apple News+ was one of the bigger announcements the company made earlier this year, a clear signal that the company was moving head-on with a subscription service future. That now includes the recently-launched Apple Arcade, and will also include Apple TV+ later this year.
Based on the pricing of both Apple Arcade and Apple TV+, do you think Apple should adjust the price of Apple News+?
